Utilizing Sentinel-1 InSAR data for monitoring deformation and volcanic activity of active volcanoes
Encadrant (et co-encadrant) : 
Résumé: 

My PhD project focuses on using state-of-the-art remote sensing methods, in particular interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR), to increase our understanding of volcanic processes at remote, equatorial volcanoes. The volcanoes of interest include Ambrym, Ibu, and La Soufrière. Throughout my project, I use InSAR, complemented by other remote sensing and in-situ techniques, to measure deformation linked to effusive magmatic eruptions, dome building events, and the pressurization of hydrothermal systems. The goal of this project is to synthesize this data with other measurements— degassing, thermal anomolies, seismicity, etc.— to model the sub-surface processes driving surface deformation at these volcanoes.
